Okay, I have had a LOT of meters since I being diagnosed with diabetes Type 2 in June of 2001.   I mean a LOT.  It seems like my insurance is changing their “preferred” brand every couple of months and their “preferred” provider every couple of months.Now, that being said.  I was once again, asked to change meters.  So I went ahead and got the one I wanted instead.Let me just say, I LOVE this meter.  It is incredible!!  First, it is just so easy.  No controls, nothing hard, just really simple.  put a strip in, lance the finger, and suck the blood up!  How much easier does it get as far as meters go.Untitled

But the most incredible part.  NO MORE LOGS!!!!  It automatically syncs with my iPhone. Also, you can set up alarms automatically based on how many times that you test, and your phone gives you a notification.  NO REASON not to test, or to forget to test, or whatever.  Testing regularly means your diabetes will be better controlled.

Now, as far as I know it is only on the IOS Platform at this time.  The app is free and you can download it free from the App Store here:

One Touch Reveal Mobile App

OneTouch Reveal On the App Store

and believe it or not, the meter is “preferred” on my insurance.  However, I opted to buy it so I could get it when I wanted it.

Out of the box, you have a meter, a lancer, a USB cord and a charging block for AC charging.

Easy Peasy.  The set up was also easy.  It syncs over  Bluetooth with my phone, and then it sets the date and time according to your wireless connection.  You do NOT have to be connected by wi-fi, but you do have to be connected by Bluetooth.

These are all the things you can do through the app.

The OneTouch® Verio®Sync Meter wirelessly sends blood sugar results to the OneTouch® Reveal™ mobile app. Once a blood sugar result is sent to the app you can:

Tag the blood sugar result with a meal flag.
Receive High and Low Pattern messages.
Add carbs, activity, medication data and notes about your activities.
Manually enter other blood sugar test results.
Review results on graphs.
Share your blood sugar results with others.
Set reminders to prompt you to test, snack, exercise, order testing supplies, etc.

 

It also has a light that you can turn on and off while you are testing, so no more bright lights in the middle of the night when you are sinking or you can just have an extra little gadget on it!

This is my actual meter. It is charging at this point, but I will show you a stock picture of the screen

 You can get a copy of the quick start guide here. 

Below is the meter in action.  Check out this video:  

I paid $29.99 from the One Touch Website and received it within a couple of days. I received 30% off and free shipping and that is a deal that is still going on now.  It took me longer to get the strips and lancets because of doctors and insurance and a new company and everyone wanting to be in control, however I was ready.  I firmly believe that I am the only person that can totally control my healthcare besides God.  I MUST be 100% in control of it, because no one else is looking out for my best interest, but that is a whole different blog series!!!  and I digress.
Now the strips are only for use by any of the Verio machines, they are not interchangeable with any other OneTouch machine.  The Lancer, which is called a One Touch Delica.  I made a choice to continue using it, however, any Lancer will do.  It doesn’t even need to be a One Touch Brand.  Just  know if you use the Delica though, it has different kind of lancet (see all the pictures of everything at the bottom of this post)

I am extremely happy with this machine and the user interface that comes from my iPhone 5.  (other platforms of iPhone are compatible, like the 4, 4S and 5C and 5S, iPad or iPod Touch running IOS 5.1 or later)

I don’t think I have ever been this excited about using a meter.  

Here is all the technical stuff that goes with the meter and instead of reinventing the wheel, I did copy this right off of the OneTouch Website so that I knew it would be exact based on their findings.  You cn find that information here
